continue to line dry, even in freezing temps (it's just 1 load a day now, with lots of space on the lines and lots of time hanging out)

Had to light the boiler, it's freezing out (below freezing most mornings) and was too cold in the house. BUT, only have the thermostat turned on in the basement and in the kids rooms, but not in the main part of the house. That's still turned off completely (and it's cold at 62, but will stay off as long as no one is home to enjoy some heat!)

cooked from the freezer rather than going out to dinner with honey

saved UPC's from dog food, got a free bag this month

avoided shopping so I didn't spend money

Shared my entertainment book with others, not frugal for me, but frugal for them
